Dominic Calvert-Lewin is relishing the challenge of leading the line for Everton.
According to Calvin, he said: “Everyone knows you have to lead the line, and it comes with great responsibility.
“I will take that pressure on my shoulders; I want to lead the line for Everton. I’m happy to be doing that at the moment.
“If I want to get to where I want to get to and score many goals for Everton, I have to take that responsibility on.
“I’d like to think my last few performances have shown that I can lead the line and I’m capable of taking that responsibility and lead the lads from the front.”
Eleventh-placed Everton’s problem all season has been consistency and the win over Chelsea – the first over a top-six side in over two years – was only third from their last nine league matches.
Silva’s side has also only won back-to-back league matches once this season, in October, which has scuppered hopes of challenging the top six.
“That is why we’re we are at the moment,” added Calvert-Lewin.
“We have to be honest with ourselves, there have been times when we have not come to the fore as we should have.
“Consistency is key and momentum and there is no hiding place, we are all aware it is not good to be winning and then losing games, we want to go on winning streaks and build momentum.
“We can build momentum from Chelsea; there are seven games left and we have to try to win those.
